"Open Up The Door" New York singer Regina Bonelli released her debut CD. Besides providing the vocals Regina also plays organ and piano. The production is done by Michael Hill (Michael Hill's Blues Mob), who also takes care of the guitar. In that respect she is in good hands. Regina has a powerful and soulful voice, with which she fills the songs with soul and blues. The CD contains ten great songs, which are all moving in the blues and soul pattern. Up-tempo, funky and ballads interchange, leaving plenty of variation. Regina is accompanied by an excellent band, complete with a horn section, which strengthens the soul feeling. My favorite songs are "Daddy I'm A Big Girl Now" - what a voice - and the beautiful slow blues "Usin ''. An excellent debut with ten great songs. Definitely worth of being listened to."
"Ms Bonelli has a knockout voice, looks and songs."
"a beautifully powerful voice...well-crafted lyrics from her own pen...a smoothly powerful voice is witnessed here. She also possesses piano and organ skills. This my friends is a definite keeper."
“holy moly!! Open Up the Door just got a killer review in Blues Blast Magazine June 2015 issue!!! "a smoothly powerful voice is witnessed here" "well-crafted lyrics" "piano and organ skills" "particularly fluid guitar by Michael Hill" "a finished product that deserves to be heard" "this my friends is a definite keeper"..”
"I was so excited to meet Regina because she's a new lady to the "mainstream" blues world and I want to introduce you to her. Regina's big voice, ripping piano playing and blond bombshell looks are a rare one-two-three punch combination of heartfelt soul and pure Brooklyn attitude. I've been waiting for the next blues babe from the NY area to emerge and Regina has broken loose. Regina is a single mother who takes her life experiences and puts them into song. Her new album "Open Up the Door" (produced by Michael Hill) is soon to be released and I look forward to hearing it.
